Trapeze

Beginner Trapeze

Upcoming Beginner Workshops Dec. 5th & Dec.19th.

NEW Beginner 6 Week Series with Coach Susan starts January 2nd!

Trapeze is one of the oldest circus apparatuses, and one of the most versatile! It can be used to showcase the strength inherent in static trapeze as well as the lyricism of dance trapeze, and everything in between. This class will introduce you to foundational skills that make up the common language of movement on the trapeze. We will be working primarily on low, single point trapezes. The only prerequisite is the willingness to try something new!

 

Beginner Trapeze 6 week Series: This class will focus on the foundational skills that are common to most styles of trapeze, with a slant towards single point/dance trapeze.

Trapeze is one of the oldest circus apparatuses, and one of the most versatile! This simple bar suspended from two ropes can be used to showcase the strength and dynamics inherent in static trapeze as well as the lyricism and elegance of single point dance trapeze, and everything in between. In this class we’ll learn foundational skills that make up the language of movement that is shared by all of these approaches to trapeze. We will be working on single point trapezes at a variety of heights (waist- to head-high) to accommodate a variety of abilities and comfort levels. No prerequisites, except the willingness to try something new!
